Treehouse Dining in Northumberland

By Linda Tancs

Ordinarily you might not wish to see a tree trunk rising like a phoenix from the floor of your dining room.  That is, of course, unless you’re dining in a treehouse.  No doubt a unique experience, The Treehouse at Alnwick Gardens in England’s Northumberland offers farm-to-table menus, live music and a long list of beers and wines.  Not to mention the bird’s-eye view.  Needless to say, the kids will love it.

A Mistletoe for Any Season

By Linda Tancs

There’s no need to hold out until the Christmas season to fall under the amorous spell of the mistletoe.  At the Mistletoe Lodge outside England’s Amberley Castle in West Sussex, summer is the perfect time to play Cupid.  Perched upon the beautiful sycamore trees by the Castle’s main entrance, the lodge is a tree house reached by a rope bridge and walkway, offering spectacular views of the 900-year-old Sussex castle and its lakes and grounds.  The tree house is available for rental for a ‘dîner à deux’ from May to September (weather permitting), offering up seasonal fare and a floral ambience custom crafted to your liking.  No wonder the luxury retreat is a favorite for marriage proposals.
